On Day Two of the family trip to West Texas, we piled into the car and drove to Big Bend National Park and neighboring areas. The drive was a couple of hours from where we were staying.
Big Bend is an amazing place. It is dry and rugged and uninviting and yet also beautiful and amazing.
Of course, as with any place in the Wild, Wild West, you must be aware of the wildlife and know how to take the proper precautions....
We had a picnic lunch at the Visitor Centers at Castolon and then headed down to the Santa Elena Canyon Overlook Trail. Marti, Graham, the kids, and I did the hike, while Mom and Dad people watched in the shade.
